hope your meeting goes well Manta. I like your affirmations, especially "I am enough" - I'm a big fan of self-acceptance (rather than self-esteem).

Right, AA meeting is 30 mins drive and starts at 8pm (1 1/4 hours off)...I can feel myself getting anxious sitting here so I am going to set off now. Better to be 45 mins early than not turn up. I am doing this! xx

Y'know, as many unnecessary lawyers as there are in the world, we should have no problem making rat-flavored cat food.

I'm glad you made it.

Meeting's probably just about over by now...hope you found some little helpful nuggets! That was the thing for me in AA - I always learned something in every meeting, even if it was just some catchy way to say something I already thought I knew.

My way of tackling that kind of situation now is to always have a travel/camping mug of my own on the go full of something (coffee, tea, hot chocoate, soda water, plain water and ice, anything non-alcoholic I feel like) so I keep refilling my own mug and already have a drink so people donít need to hand me one.
Thinking of you Badger and sending you lots of support, weíre with you on this

Badge =- even of every single drinker you know goes on this camping trip you can still stay sober - you have that capacity and strength - don;t doubt yourself. You're not new at this - you know your stuff

You can do this Badge, you'll be the one with the clear head in the morning who gets the most enjoyment out of the day.

Manta, I hope your meeting was a positive experience for you.

I hope all is well, Mantal...lordy- you folks have 'powder rooms'?
Is that for the powder than gran gives every family member at Xmas- always? (in my experience).
I just thought of lots of old nursing stories and powder...used to set the smoke alarms off.

Got off track there- well done for going, Manta.
Support to you.

I bought a keyboard with fluorescent green glow in the dark HUGE LETTERS keys, for old people like me who get up early and don't want the lights on yet. \\\ But the backspace key isn't as big as my old one and I keep hitting the backslash. I guess my typing skillz aren't that great.

In other news, I fell to the "turmeric m;agi\\\\===....uh magic" hype. I am having turmeric in my morning coffee. Can't say it does much for me, but I'm gonna keep trying it to see if I notice anything.

Happy Wednesday.
